We’re fairly picky when it comes to our Indie music and don’t tend to be too enamoured by thrashing guitars and screaming vocals. East-Country 6-piece Solko, however, offer a different approach. They have a set-up of your typical rock band but two extra saxophones add a real swing and funk to their music.
…including tracks by Jehst, Klashnekoff, M.U.D. Family, Wiley, Giggs, The Illersapians and many more!
